NO FLOOR AND BOUNCING BEES!!! David Friend considers the merits of no floor versus mesh floor in the article on this link. It will be interesting to see what conclusions he draws in the Spring.

Bee Prepared! There will be a children's competition at the 2017 Honiton Show to design a poster or mobile illustrating how bees work together. Whilst the Honiton Show isn't until August the details are provided now to allow teachers and parents to initiate a project to understand the collaborative working of bees and then design an art work showing their interpretation. See more details on the 'Honey Show' and 'Getting Started' pages. Good luck!
